    Pellet Pro Review

    I burned some PRO PELLETS last year and they were AWESOME...clean, low ash, excellent heat, minimal fines. They are out of MI. I've never heard of Pellet Pro pellets. The ones I had were in a white bag with a pic of a wood log at the top with Pro Pellet on it, the bag had green and white...

    Chows still holdin steady at 199.00

    I called HD here yesterday...said they had 1 ton of Stove Chow left and would only sell it as a ton. I didn't even bother to ask the price. Went to TSC and got some "Hardwood Premium Wood Pellets" which are Lignetics. Price is $209/ton until Feb 14th. No idea what they'll be after that :) I do...

    Yes, they are. I didn't see "Lignetics" on the bag ANYWHERE. Manager assured me they were, even took me to the unopened pallets and showed me each of them had a Lignetics tag on them :) Having not tried these in my stove this year I bought 2 bags...went back for 6 more bags today. They are MUCH...

    Help to set anticipator on mechanical thermostat...

    Thanks Pelleting but this is the Quadra Fire thermostat that was installed with the stove...a simple 2 wire. They adjusted it a year or so ago during year end cleaning but it's "off" again :( I was told to "just turn it"... LOL...turn it to WHAT setting? I'll have to call the guy back :/

    Greenways are good!

    Nope, Somersets are NOT easy to find here on the Eastern Shore of MD. I think most of the Somersets are on the Western Shore or further north of me in DE maybe.

    Greenways are good!

    I tried Greenways about 4 years ago from Lowes...said NO MORE, they were nasty as hell! My brother got them last year from a place on pre-buy. I ran out so got a bag from him...good heat, clean, few fines, fair on ash. This year I went ahead and got a ton of the Greenways on pre buy @ $269/ton +...

    ProPellets?

    I found them to be one of if not the best pellet I've tried. Hardly any fines, minimal ash and excellent heat! TSC got a partial load of them here on the Eastern Shore of MD during last years 'shortage'. I only bought 5 bags to try-went back 2 days later and of course they were all gone :( I...

    Pro Pellet Bags Hot Spots

    Have you burned any of them yet? If so, what's your take on them? :) I was upset that I only got 5 bags but it was a new pellet to me...turned out to be one of the best I've tried in 5 years. TSC got some other energy fiber something or other this last time...didn't even bother to read all of...

    Don't know about NJ TSC but NY TSC is still getting Pro Pellets. Here in MD we got a shipment and they blew out of there. I had never burned them so only bought 5 bags and of course when I went back they were all gone.My findings were minimal ash, no fire pot buildup/residue, low fines and great...

    Pre-buy for next season question

    Good find mmj :) Wish I could find more of them around here! Looks like I'll be getting Greenways on a pre-order...rather be safe than sorry for next year. TSC said they didn't think they will be getting anymore pellets this season. My brother has a Harman (I forget the model), is burning...

    Mid-Atlantic (NY, PA, NJ, DE, MD, VA) Got about 7 days left

    Haven't tried the Freedoms - read too many negatives on them. Glad to hear they're working for you! Survival was still out as of today and hoping that will change soon since we still have some burning time left!

    Pre-buy for next season question

    All the sellers here tell us the shipping kills them to get them hence the jack up on pellets coming to us from TN.

    Ace and Home Depot in Salisbury, MD said they were not getting anymore this season. Lowes didn't have any. Survival Products is out. TSC got some Pro Pellets in late yesterday and as of 6:30 last night only had 7 of 22 tons left and they were FLYING out of there. I got 5 bags to go with the 6...

    Pre-buy for next season question

    I'm in MD on the Eastern Shore. Getting 'decent' pellets here is rare. I have a shot this summer to do a pre-buy of Greenway pellets. Does $269/ton sound 'reasonable' for this pellet? This is about $15 dollars higher than the price for a ton of WPI (Wood Pellet Co) which have been HORRID this...

    I've used WPI...hated the smell, fines and just overall not impressed. This year had Turmans to try for $295/ton delivered. Ran out of Turmans and all I could get was WPI - HA! BEST WPI's I think they've ever had this year! Gone was the terrible chemical smell, all those fines AND the heat was...
